This handsome three bedroom semi detached residence occupies an elevated position above the harbour of Boscastle

Situated in an elevated position within Boscastle, just a short walk to the historic and bustling harbour which is beautifully preserved and maintained by the National Trust, one can find The Chestnuts. A handsome three bedroom semi detached residence with the benefit of off road parking, a separate detached carport and pretty enclosed gardens with far reaching views across the valley below.

The Chestnuts was originally built in the 1850's and, inside, one will discover a wonderful blend of original character sympathetically combined with some contemporary additions to create an impressive home. Externally, the property has a beautiful stone façade and an imposing presence.

On the ground floor, you are presented with a grand turned staircase within the entrance hall. This rises to the first floor landing with a large sliding sash window, an understairs cupboard and the kitchen and sitting room off. The sitting room has a characterful, unorthodox shape with a high ceiling, door to the rear garden and plenty of natural light. The focal point of the room is a gorgeous multifuel stove set on a slate hearth with exposed stonework behind. The kitchen is lovely and light, with an oak floor underfoot, a range of light fronted cabinets and drawers and an oak block work surface. There is a ceramic Belfast sink, integral dishwasher, space for a freestanding fridge and electric cooker/hob. From the kitchen, the dining room is grand and characterful with a high ceiling, alcoves and wood burning stove set on a slate hearth.

Up on the first floor are three bedrooms - two genuine doubles and a further single. The two double bedrooms each have a feature fireplace and the master bedroom has a modern en-suite shower room with skylight. The accommodation is complete with a further modern shower room.

To the rear of the kitchen is a small courtyard which leads to the detached utility room/workshop. This has a small storage area, slate worktop, space and plumbing for white goods and the oil fired boiler. The main room also has a slate tiled floor and timber clad walls. There is also a separate cloakroom. The gardens at The Chestnuts are beautifully landscaped and maintained, very well stocked and private. Cornish stone walls and fencing form the boundaries with slate patios at either end of an area of lawn. At the end of the garden is a summerhouse with power and light. From the end of the garden, one can enjoy the far reaching views across the valley. Separately from the house is a parking area and detached timber frame open fronted garage with excellent storage area above. A further raised area offers a ready made vegetable plot. Please note that there is a pedestrian right of way across the courtyard to the neighbouring property. Services to the property include mains water and electricity, private drainage with an oil fired central heating system.
